It's time for our next recipe exchange. Last week was very successful. The theme for this week is; St. Patrick's Day! Please share any of your St. Patrick's Day inspired dishes.
Does anyone make any regular food green for St. Patrick's day? ie: green milk, green eggs, green jello, green pudding? My 5 year old loves green, so this is always a fun day for us! - I-love-my-family

I also like making sausage & cabbage. I take a kalbasa sausage and chop up a cabbage steam then together and a side of mashed potatoes. That is a quick & easy meal any time of the year! - I-love-my-family

Roasted cabbage, slice a head of cabbage into thick 1 inch slices. Place on cookie sheet, drizzle with some olive oil, salt and pepper to taste. Bake at 350* for 35 min or until tender. Keep an eye on it, you may need to flip half way through cooking. - Mrs.mouse

I am not very creative for my st patties day food. I use my crock pot & I put in the corned beef & seasoning pack. I let it cook all day. About an hour before I am ready I put in potatoes. I usually cook the cabbage in a seperate pot. The next day chop up the the leftovers for a great hash and top with a fried egg! Yummy! - I-love-my-family

We don't do corned beef. My family doesn't like it(they don't) and we don't really eat beef anymore. Sometimes I do potato soup, sometimes shepherds pie We always make Traditional Irish Soda Bread. There a a website dedicated to the this filled with the history of the bread and recipes etc.... http://www.sodabread.info/index.htm .We like to read about it every year before we make it.
White Soda Bread:
4 cups (16 oz) of all purpose flour.
1 Teaspoon baking soda
1 Teaspoon salt
14 oz of buttermilk
Preheat the oven to 425 F. degrees. Lightly crease and flour a cake pan.
In a large bowl sieve and combine all the dry ingredients.
Add the buttermilk to form a sticky dough. Place on floured surface and lightly knead (too much allows the gas to escape)
Shape into a round flat shape in a round cake pan and cut a cross in the top of the dough.
Cover the pan with another pan and bake for 30 minutes (this simulates the bastible pot). Remove cover and bake for an additional 15 minutes.
The bottom of the bread will have a hollow sound when tapped so show it is done.
Cover the bread in a tea towel and lightly sprinkle water on the cloth to keep the bread moist. - gardeningthroughtheseasons

I'm loving these ideas. The only thing coming to mind for me was corned beef in the crock pot (or boiled on the stove). I'm loving this place to get such great ideas from other mommies! - 3John4

While watching a show on the food network today they reminded me of a great recipe. ( I think it's more British but it could still work). Bangers and mash! Basically a pork sausage, mashed potatoes, and a gravy! Easy to make! - I-love-my-family
